(Worthy News) - The Russian Navy is investing in two new submarines, one of which is being described by the head of Russia’s state-owned shipbuilding corporation as a "carrier killer," according to the independent Moscow Times.
The second boat would be designed to protect Russian ballistic submarines from enemy attack.
The announcement continues an active period in Russian submarine development. Following the 1991 breakup of the Soviet Union, the Russian Navy, like the country’s other military services, went into decline as resources were stripped away by a collapsing economy, poor morale, and inept leadership.
